Since Ted Cruz’ Monday announcement of his candidacy for President of the United States, the MSM has been posed to discredit him or cause him to stumble. His appearance on “CBS This Morning” Tuesday was proof positive.
But the Texas Senator was more than ready for the bombardment when network correspondent Vladimir Duthiers pounced, asking Cruz if he would “take away” the health care of 16 millions of Americans insured under Obamacare if he was elected president
“Well, you know, those numbers don’t tell the whole picture,” Cruz calmly responded. “For one thing, the bulk of those numbers are coming from expanded Medicaid. And Medicaid is a program where a lot of people who are on Medicaid are not getting health care. Medicaid is a system that is already overburdened and more and more people are just getting waiting lists and not actually getting health care.”
Cruz added, “Beyond that, remember six million people had their health insurance canceled because of Obamacare. You are not doing someone a favor if you cancel the health insurance they like, and then force them to buy new health insurance at higher premiums that covers less.
The newly declared Republican candidate also noted that Obamacare is the “single largest job killer” in the United States.
And try as they might to elicit a misstep, Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King also found him unflappable.
